Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

House unanimously passes Polis’s bill to protect at-risk infants
Wednesday, May 11: Washington, D.C. - The House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation today to protect substance-exposed infants. The Improving Safe Care for the Prevention of Infant Abuse and Neglect Act (H.R. 4843), co-authored by Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), requires the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) to review and confirm that states have policies to ensure that health care providers notify state child protective service agencies when a child is born with a drug dependency. Per the bill, after notification, the child protective service agencies will develop a “safe care plan” to more closely monitor the health outcomes for these infants.  In the midst of a nationwide opioid crisis, this bill closes a loophole to protect our country’s most vulnerable citizens. “Babies born with a drug-dependency face unique challenges from birth that need to be addressed swiftly,” Polis said. “They deserve every opportunity just like any other child.&
Supreme Court must validate DACA, DAPA+ immigration programs
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in U.S. vs. Texas, which will decide the fate of the president's Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA+) programs. I joined thousands of demonstrators on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington in support of these programs, which help keep families together, allow DREAMers and parents of American children to work legally, and would greatly contribute to our economy and national security. Both programs represent the prioritization of our immigration-enforcement apparatus to focus our limited resources on detaining and deporting immigrants who pose a danger to our communities. If Congress wanted the president to detain and remove all of the approximately 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants throughout the U.S., it would appropriate sufficient resources to do so. Instead, Congress allocates sufficient funds to remove approximately 400,000 individuals per year, and most
Polis Releases Statement Regarding EPA Rule
Thursday, May 12: Washington, D.C. - Representative Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement today after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a finalized rule to limit methane emissions from new and modified oil and gas facilities. Modeled after recent action in Colorado, the rule will avoid the equivalent of 11 million metric tons of carbon dioxide by 2025, and creates climate benefits of over $170 million.  This is an important, cost-effective way to protect our health and communities, combat climate change and reduce wasted natural gas. “Methane emissions have a negative and devastating impact on our climate, and we must act now to reduce methane gas emissions,” Polis said. “While I am disappointed the EPA rule only targets new and modified sources, the EPA not only has the right to act and require a reduction of methane emissions, but the responsibility.”
House Unanimously Passes Polis’s Email Privacy Act
Wednesday, Apr. 27  – Washington, DC - Today, the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 699) unanimously passed the United States House of Representatives. Co-authored by Reps. Jared Polis (D-CO) and Kevin Yoder (R-KS) the legislation compiled wide bipartisan support - over 300 co-sponsors - making it one of the most popular bills in Congress. The Email Privacy Act would update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to state that all government agencies must get a warrant to search Americans’ online communications, regardless of when the email was crafted.  In 1986, Congress passed ECPA, which contains a loophole that allows the government to search any email older than 180 days stored on a third-party server without a warrant. “Today is a major step forward to protect our civil liberties,” Polis said. “Citizens should no longer be at risk of having their emails warrantlessly searched by government agencies. The Email Privacy Act will update our archaic priva
